Marketing and Communications Seminar

Join us for the 2018 edition of the ISNZ Marketing Seminar to enjoy a day to connect and network with your peers from private schools in New Zealand.

This seminar will appeal to all marketing and communications personnel, from those working in the early stages of marketing a school to those seasoned practitioners looking for new and innovative ideas. This is a unique opportunity to hear case studies from independent schools as well as get some insights from leading experts in the marketing and advertising area.

After the success of last year's Parents' Panel discussion we have asked some parents from our Member School communities to share their journey when selecting their children’s schools. After hearing their insights, make sure your marketing strategy is on point to reach your target market successfully.

Target Audience: Board Members, Principals/Heads, Marketing/Communications Directors and Managers, International Recruitment/Student Directors and Managers, and anyone with responsibilities in marketing and/or communications.
